- A new bill called the Safe-T Act passed recently and is causing some controversy in the state.
- According the the Chicago tribune the bill, “will have wide-ranging consequences throughout our criminal justice system. With the elimination of cash bail, criminal suspects will be detained before trial only in the case of forcible felonies that are nonprobational or unless they are considered a flight risk or a danger to someone in the community.”
- The new bill is being put under scrutiny for making some violent crimes including Arson, Kidnapping, and Aggravated Battery a non-detainable offense.
